It’s hard to believe that 4 months have gone by so quick, and in less than 24 hours I’ll be boarding a plane back to the USA. Yes, I’m excited for proper iced coffee and the hugs of familiar friends and family, but I’m also sad to be leaving a place that has come to mean so much. This trip …

Florence Winds and Wanderings

Don’t get me wrong, I love love LOVE Rome, but Florence might be a new favorite! This past weekend I went and visited the smaller city and stayed with some friends who are studying there (aka the infamous Maggie Manning who can be found on her fabulous Instagram). We took a short hike up to an overlook of the city after getting …
